Singer Cafe is hosting the initiative TO BE THERE ‘in Palestine’. To be There has alternative programs and day trips for tourists who want to visit and explore Palestine. Alternative tourism in Palestine is very important. You can only understand the situation in the Westbank if you have been there. The excursions always leave from Singer Cafe in Beit Sahour.
To Be There can also help you organize your private tour, for individuals and groups. They can help with logistics, hotel booking in the Westbank and personal requests. They have a large network and contacts throughout Palestine. Send an e-mail with your questions and they will get back to you!

Cultural Art Walks in Beit Sahour
Twice a month MishwArt organizes a cultural Art Walk in the old city of Beit Sahour, departing from Singer Cafe.
‘Mishwar’ is the Arabic word for walk or tour. The aim of the walk is to discover the studios and showrooms of local Palestinian artists in Beit Sahour and enjoy the atmosphere in the old part of the town.
An Art Walk will always finish with a one hour creative workshop or show at one of the studios. These will rotate and will be announced per event.
